ARICENT PAPER ON 10th SEPTEMBER
Hi dear friends,
HOPE FOR YOUR BEST.
First of all i would like to thank to GOD , my lecturers, my
family members and my friends, because of there wishes only
I made to aricent .
Special thanks to :Meit mahajan and aditi bhandari
I did my B.tech from institute of engineering and emerging
technologies baddi, distt solan, himachal pradesh in june
2006.my branch was Computer science.
I will be telling you about my experience that i had during
my interview. First thing i would like to tell you is that
aricent was flextronics earlier.you can also check for
flextronics papers on freshersworld site.
What to study for written test.
To clear written you need not study any thing particular but
what you can do is ,you can go through all the previous
papers present in freshersworld site. because you are never
sure about what will come in the paper.But you can go
through some core subjects that would help- you after
In interview At the start they will ask you for your best
subjects.But these subjects they want you to know about.
1.Any language C or C++
Books to be followed->
test your skills in c by kanetkar,
C by Dennis ritchie are sufficient.
Initially for written you would be given a choice for C or
C++, and based upon your choice your technical interview
would depend. like if you choose C you will be asked about C
only, in technical interview.
Books to be followed->
Go through data structures by schoum series(initially) then
you can go through other books also for programs in c.
prepare well on stacks,sorting algorithims,trees,queues
,linked lists, implementation in C is very important.In
interview they will ask you to write programs.like add an
item to list,delete a particular node,quick sort program etc
questions on trees will be there in written test.
Go through book by gelvin on operating system
very few questions will be there in written.But for
interview you can prepare on memory management(virtual
memory),paging,segmentation,semaphores, real time operating
systems,and other type of operating systems,deadlock,process
and different states etc.
You can go through tanenboum.for CSE students only overview
is sufficient like OSI,TCP IP Model
basic idea of bridges,hub,switches,gateways,routers,
packet/circuit/message switching etc.
for electronics students you can go to details of GPRS,GSM
and also prepare well on digital electronics and topics like
half adder,full adder X mod counter (X=5,10,20 etc) k maps
So these are the four subjects by mastering which you can be
there in flextronics(Aricent)
->there will be two technical interviews by different
people.usually it lasts for long time(1.5 hr average) but it
depends bility like for me both last for 25 minutes approx.
after that you will undergo an HR If you have cleared both
the technicals then it would be just a formality. But some
usual questions like your hobbies,negative and positive
points.how will you manage your team members in case you are
manager etc can be asked,They basically want to see how you
will behave in a group,always take the descision like a team
not as a single member.you should be very coperative and
SOME GENERAL GUIDELINES
The most important thing is be particular in your answer.in
case you donot know anything about something please do not
guess.in this situation :"i donot know "or "i am not
comfortable with this" would be the best answer.you may or
may not be able to give all the answers,Don't worry in that
case.if you are able to give 60 percent of the answers then
you can make it.
The most important thing
like when they question you and in case you are not able to
answer that ,then they will ask you another question related
to that which will basically a solution to your question or
some hint so listen to that carefully and use that to answer
the main question. I will give you my example. in first
technical he asked me
What will be the output?
So i was not able to recall how to represent a negative no
in binary.so he asked me do you know 2's complement
I said yes and got to know that a negative no can be
represented in 2's complement form.So i ussed his hint to
solve that question and i used that so many times.This
experience was common in second interview also.same thing
happened to me and ultimately i got the answer.
->Don't get nervous in case they ask you questions just one
after other very fastly they do just to check whether you
can bear pressure or not,
->look into their (interviewer's) eyes to show your
Last Most important point please keep in mind
That its God and luck above all .if its your day everything
will go according to you.But if its not then......
(HOPE FOR THE BEST AND PREPARE FOR THE WORST )
So need not worry just trust in god and do the right.In case
you feel any thing to be be ambigious or you want to ask any
thing you can mail me or call me.
See you in flextronics/aricent
